Using Wright and Loder's (l985a,b) depth-dependent tidal rectification model and Garrett and Loder's (1981) diagnostic frontal circulation model, predictions of the residual circulation associated with the topographic rectification of tidal currents and the summertime density field on the northwestern and open ocean sides of Georges Bank are made and compared with observations. In general, the estimates of both wintertime and summertime along-isobath currents are in qualitative agreement with… CONTINUE READING
